We’re halfway through October and I’m desperate for festive (and safe) activities. I was thinking about going to an apple orchard, but after doing some research, it seems the Texas crop is non-existent this year… because OF COURSE it is!
So, I’ve decided to go to the farmer’s market today. I went a few years ago and honestly, I’m not sure it was for me. But I’m desperate, so I’m giving it another chance. After being in lockdown for 7 months, I’m really TRYING to venture out and get in the spirit.
But, let’s talk scalp scrub because I’m still trying out as many as possible to report back.
The latest one I’ve tried is by NatureLab Tokyo — their Perfect Shine Clarifying Scalp Scrub. It came in my September Birchbox and I tried it right away!
This is a sugar scrub made with sake water… and it foams up! I loved using it. It’s got a cream consistency — almost like a whipped feeling. I felt like it was easy to apply and it made my hair and scalp feel so clean.
One thing that’s become a real test for me as I try these different scalp scrubs is how easy they are to rinse out… because you do not want to have your hair dry and still have chunks of salt or sugar in your hair (it’s happened before)!
This one rinsed out easily. I have found that applying any scalp scrub when your hair is wet works best. I wet my hair and do the scrub, rinse as best I can, then shampoo, and really work it in, rinse thoroughly to make sure the scrub and the shampoo are rinsed out. Then follow up with a conditioner or a hair mask.
I think this is my favorite scalp scrub so far! It’s also really affordable at $16. Many of the reviews for this product said it was similar to a designer product, but for a lower price… I’m always here for that.
Do you use scalp scrubs? Which one is your favorite?
